During this time he has worked with his clients and teams to distill the institutional barriers to complex political, development and humanitarian challenges down into a focused set of easy to understand concepts, analyse and co-design value for money options on the way forward, and help his clients start their strategic change initiatives on the right foot and empowering them to adapt and innovate as they move forward.
Prior to founding Antylles, Edward co-founded two technology-related startups and consulted to the banking and technology industries on organizational change management and programme communications before joining the United Nations in Afghanistan.
